I Heart NYC!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I was super busy creating baby show invite designs and doing odds and ends around the house. Why is that weekends go so fast? Even though I was busy I feel that I didn’t get anything done. Esh!

Anyways, today’s post is all going to be NYC related since I live in New York City. I have lots of NYC pictures from sightseeing and doing things around town but I haven’t really found many NYC digi scrap products out there. This got me thinking that I wanted to create some elements of my own to use for some NYC themed pages. So this weekend I created some things and I thought I would share with you. Here is my first element, a rub on decal of a New York City taxi.

I’m going to keep going with these elements and maybe even put together a kit. If you like the taxi freebie and are interested in a NYC kit or another freebie NYC related please let me know by registering and leaving a comment. Thanks to Atomic Cupcake for the Rub On action.

So anyways, recently I won from Disc Talk Radio a free custom layout by the well known and talented Gina Miller. I thought I would post it for you all to see. It’s a picture from our wedding day taken by the Brooklyn Bridge which fits today’s blog post, so I thought it was fitting to share.

Since I posted a wedding layout/photo I thought I would share with you the Save the Date I did awhile back for the wedding. I just posted it to my portfolio as well as Save the Date magnets, which I hope to sell as a design. I loved these so much…Two Peas in a Pod theme so cute I think. He he he!

Speaking of Disc Talk Radio, make sure to check it out. It’s a great site for scrappers where you can tune in to hear your favorite scrappin’ celebrities share tips of the trade and gain insights that will make your next layout shine and it’s FREE to listen to the shows!

I wanted to share with you another great site and artist that I love. I’m a big fan of this artist, Ed Heck who has some great pieces of art. Love his work and can’t wait to own a piece of his some day. Here’s a copy of his Remember painting which is so simple but so moving at the same time.

Well that’s it for now. Check back tomorrow for another freebie hopefully. I’m going to work on a friends quote since tomorrow’s post is going to be about friends and some special shout outs =)

Toodles!
